was the performance of mitt romney versus barack obama in the first presidential debate. that's the biggest mismatch i can remember since reagan and mondale in 1984. and the effect that that mismatch had on the polling numbers is pretty dramatic. >> okay. whitt, thanks so much for being here. >> thank you, paul. >> when we come back, with the president's poll numbers slipping, the obama campaign is going on the attack. but can their new strategy backfire? there's a kick to it. there's a pop. wahlalalalallala! pepper, but not pepper, i'm getting like, pep-pepper. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, zip zip zip zip zip! i'm literally getting zinged by the flavor. smooth, but crisp. velvety. kind of makes me feel like a dah zing yah woooooh!

for president obama in the presidential debate. so i am not sure why he thought he would profit from it. congressman ryan was right. >> the class warfare thing is what they always go back to in times of distress. they think if they scare enough people that romney is all about preserving his own tax breaks and the regular people are going to get shafted. i'm looking at this fox news poll that came out midweek. and it turns out that 49% of those polled say they think the economy is improving. only 42% say it's getting worse. and then in the same poll it says that 42% say the economy is in fair shape while 41% say economic conditions are poor. okay. so, i don't really understand these numbers but apparently 49% of the people think things might not be great now but they are getting better. so, does that hurt romney's ability to make the case for his policies versus obamas? >> i think not. because i think most of those people undery stand where the credit for an improving economy rest after four years of struggle. 23 million people, laura, still either are not working, having given up on the
